Star Trek Online (need unpacker)

Post by lyutor1945 » Fri Nov 24, 2017 7:10 pm

Hi guys!! Recently I came across star trek online and models in this game are pretty good. My friend is ready to make a script to extract these models,but first you need to unpack Mset and wtex files. For those who are interested And ready to make unpacker, the samples below:)

those wtex samples are crunch compressed, tools posted in that link won't work with them.
Noesis supports crunch and there is a python script here that works on some
viewtopic.php?p=87769#p87769

edit
ok here is modified Noesis python script to open all the wtex samples and possibly htex textures too,
or at least the ones from this thread viewtopic.php?f=18&t=15666&p=125609 :D
*script updated March 6, 2018*
tex_StarTrekOnline_wtex_htex.zip
this might be the last update i make on this script, it is becoming more chaotic than anticipated. :D
there are only a few textures i seen so far that are storing mipmaps first and i don't have enough
diverse samples to compare and confirm flags so i will give the users more control here. :D
in the updated script on line 4 is where you can change to 0 or 1 (false or true),
it is set to 1 or true by default, so if you see a texture that displays with mipmaps first
you must change that line in the script and save and reload plugins, then you can export that texture
and it will look correct. :)

i have also seen a htex texture that starts with a valid dds header but it stores mipmaps first and
Noesis will override any command i throw at it because it thinks the dds is normal. (:
so i have made a bms script that you can run on those to get a fixed dds texture that you can open.

Code: Select all

# script for QuickBMS http://aluigi.altervista.org/quickbms.htm

idstring "DDS "
get SIZE asize
get NAME basename
string NAME + _fixed.dds
goto 0x14
get DATASIZE long
xmath OFFSET "SIZE - DATASIZE"
append
log NAME 0x0 0x80
log NAME OFFSET DATASIZE
append

@lyutor1945

There was someone who made an extractor for STO's Mset files at one point. I think that project was dropped but I still have the file on hand. Shoot me a note.

If you still have the program to unpack .mset models I'll make a maxscript for model import. So, if you have any unpacked .mset sample attach it here I will take a look. Thanks.
Making model-import scripts, PM

Acewell: if you need more textures from STO let me know as I have unpacked versions of the texture hoggs from last years version of the game sitting around and I am sure I can do the same with the current game. A lot of work swapping textures in the game is going on at Undertow and they have been updating the hoggs toolset with each new release.

Hi @all.

Does anyone got the Costume<xxx>.bin Converted?

If, in xml would be awesome.

And also howto create Materials from Textures in 3d Apps (Blender would be nice, 2.8+)

Howto determin if Model needs Mirroring?

Is there something about the Skeletons as Information out there?

Wouldnt it be cool to have the Picard-Maneuver as an Animation?

@Acewell: thx for the script noesis works much better now. ;)
